I was making this video (noncomercial  tongue.gif) on videowave captured from my camcorder (I believe I saved as MPEG or something like that), and I wanted a song I had ripped from a CD to fade out and lower it's volume in a certain part, so I went on sound editor and fixed it up how I wanted.

When I saved it it said 'it would save it as a different file' or something similiar to that so I was like, "whatever". When I went back to videowave and tried to add the music, I couldn't find it in the 'my music' folder so I looked around and eventually found a new folder called 'Roxio'. So I looked in there (Roxio > Sound Editor > Song-I-Was-Looking-For), and it said there was no media files that I could use in there, and then it went on to say that I would need to change the filter settings or something I didn't quite understand.

Can anyone help me? I want to be able to put that song in the Roxio > Sound Editor onto my videowave  music track. I hope I explained okay, help please?  ohmy.gif

When you fix up your song, in Sound Editor, you don't save it.  You have to click on the Export Current Clip or Track or Selection.  You can pick whatever format you want, but .wav, or mp3 are the best to use.

Also, export as a name that is different than the name of the clip you brought in.
Life is good!

Those whatevers will get you every time.  Pay attention to them !

That whatever you saved is a Sound Editor file and will only open in that application.  You must export the edited music to a sound file - chose wav for best performance.

You can also simply open Video Wave, add the video and then add that music to one of the audio tracks.  You can adjust the sound level in place.  Note to edit any native audio track, click to show tracks and select native.

You can watch this (link).  It is slightly slow to download.

Great minds again Bruce.   biggrin.gif
